As of 1/1/18, Hunt Bike Wheels is proud to announce that - in conjunction with Bombtrack Bicycle Co. - we will be entering the UCI Cyclocross circuit with the signing of Dutch rider, Gosse van der Meer. This is our first step into the world of professional cyclocross racing, and we're thrilled to be supporting Gosse heading into the latter half of the 2017/18 season and beyond!
Having been racing for Tarteletto-Isorex for 2017, Gosse will race by himself, under the name of Bombtrack Bicycle Co. (powered by Hunt Wheels) for 2018 onwards. The move into the very highest level of cyclocross racing is indicative of Hunt Bike Wheels' absolute dedication and drive to offer cyclocross riders with a level equipment that matches their dedication and enthusiasm for the sport - whether performing at this level or at their local amateur leagues.
"We were approached by Manuel of Bombtrack to discuss sponsoring a single rider in the UCI Cyclocross circuit, who wanted to branch away from the conventional team structure and race for and by himself. Having spoken with Gosse a few times, and seen firsthand his unrivalled love for the sport, it felt like the right thing to do to enable this young and prodigiously talented rider to race in the sport in his own way. As many already know, Hunt takes cyclocross incredibly seriously (and, when the time is right, not very seriously at all - such as at the SSCXEU champs!), and hope this step into the highest rankings is indicative of our passion for this increasingly popular discipline" - Ollie Gray, Brand Manager for Road & CX Performance Products
At just 22 years of age, Gosse definitely has an incredible journey ahead - please join us in wishing him great success moving forward, and follow his development here:
